On March 23rd, Pia is set to release a Splatoon mook (magazine/book) with a look at the Nintendo competitive shooter's history, design and merchandise, gameplay hints and a series of celebrity interviews, including voice actors Takuya Eguchi (My Love Story!!'s Takeo Gouda) and Ruriko Aoki ([email protected] Cinderella Girls' Riina Tada), Yoshiyuki Hirai (comedian from "America Zarigani), Akira Kawashima (tv host) and Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama.
Isayama's interview is quoted as calling the game a "chintsūzai (analgesic)" to take away some of the bitterness of the world.
The book, with bonus bandana, sells for 1,404yen.
